The Mama cows ( I call them 84 and 73) are happy in the West Barn and the calves ( left on this side) are escaping in all directions ( who knew they could jump barn doors) but otherwise things are fine. No-one got terribly noisy and by now the worst of the weaning is over.
Jude the Piglet is wearing me out. If I was keeping him he would already by living outside. I am just not an inside animal person. Even the cats live outside. Jude is still not eating out of his bowl but will eat apple or sweet potato if I hand feed him, so that is a start. I saw him follow along behind Boo yesterday – Boo had a drink out of his water bowl then Jude followed suit. So that is good.
He has milk four times a day now.
Today is Wednesday so he goes to his forever home in five days. I am going to sleep well then!
Mary cleaned out the feed shed for me the day before yesterday which has made a huge difference. Now that it is organized again I will order in more large bags of feed. Each bag is 1000 pounds and should last a while. I have found a new supplier who mixes whole feeds with local GMO free grains in his back shed. It smells really good and the trial bags have gone down very well.
Before I get going this morning I will email in an order with him.
It rained a lot in the night with thunder and lightening and is once again warm and mild. The grass will grow today.
I hope you have a lovely day.
